Get Out There

In the deep winter, I tend to retreat indoors for my gardening fix. I buy cut flowers or a new houseplant. I drink tea.

In the deep winter, I tend to retreat indoors for my gardening fix. I buy cut flowers or a new houseplant. I drink tea.

Here at work, I take a stroll to the greenhouse, where exotic orchids bloom all winter. One of my favorite quick fixes: I walk down to the research lab, where there are tomato seedlings to brush against. The distinctive tomato fragrance takes me right back to July.

Last weekend, I was lamenting the lack of snow here in the Champlain Valley. After last year’s abundance, this year is a bust. But on my way to the composter, I was struck by what I found in the garden: a quiet beauty.

It reminds me that gardens are beautiful in all seasons.

I gotta get out more.

When warm weather returns, this sedum will turn bright yellow.
